[ cheers a applause ] ladies and gentlemen, seth meyers! >> seth: good evening, i'm seth meyers, this is "late night." how's everybody doing tonight? [ cheers and applause ] glad to hear it. let's get to the news. today is columbus day. it's the perfect holiday for people who like history but
[ laughter ] that's right. it's columbus day, and in honor of christopher columbus, i went to a grocery store and got lost looking for spices. [ laughter ] [ applause ] attorneys for aerosmith sent donald trump a second cease and desist letter this weekend asking them to stop playing their song "dream on" at campaign events. said trump -- dream on dream on dream on dream on [ cheers and applause ] [ laughter ] >> seth: in an interview released yesterday, hillary clinton said she would not rule out anybody as her running mate. said one listener, "i'm back, baby." [ laughter ] i'm back. back in the game! [ cheers and applause ] senator bernie sanders and donald trump attended a
conference today hosted by a bipartisan group targeting undecided voters. really, really undecided voters. [ laughter ] can't decide, the guy with the gold leaf golf course or the guy who looks like he lives in his volvo? [ laughter ] i don't know what i like! [ laughter ] dr. ben carson made news last week by saying that the holocaust could have been averted if european jews had had guns. though i'm pretty sure what he meant to say was, "i don't want to be president." [ laughter ] [ applause ] does this help fix that? north korea this weekend held a military parade celebrating the 70th anniversary of their communist party. people who attended the parade called it amazing and mandatory. [ laughter ] that's right. north korea held a military parade to celebrate the 70th
anniversary of their communist party, and much like our parade featured an inflatable cartoon balloon. [ laughter ] [ applause ] the white house yesterday released first lady michelle obama's spotify playlist, which features beyonce, demi lovato, and esperanza spalding. while joe biden's playlist is just "now that's what i call train sounds: volume 12." [ laughter ] [ applause ] a 22-year-old connecticut man has been sentenced to a year in prison for calling in fake emergencies which led to false deployment of s.w.a.t. teams. said the man, "i get one phone call, right? [ laughter ] love to get that one phone call." and finally, a homeowner in new jersey has upset his neighbors by putting out a graphic halloween display featuring an
murdered u.s. soldier and president obama holding a bloody machete. even worse, he's planning on giving out raisins. [ laughter ] we have a great show for you guys tonight! [ cheers and applause ] from the new film "meadowland" the lovely olivia wilde is joining us tonight. [ cheers and applause ] he is the star of cw's "the flash" grant gustin stops by to talk. [ cheers and applause ] the fastest man on television. and we're gonna have music from a great u.k. band, the vamps this evening. [ cheers and applause ] very excited for you guys to hear the vamps. now, before we get to that, over the weekend, the "new york times" reported that nearly half the early money in the 2016 presidential election has come from 158 incredibly wealthy families. with more on how this influx of money from so few people, is effecting the election it's time for "a closer look."
2016 election so far comes from a small, a very small number of wealthiest people in the country. here's just one example. chicago hedge fund billionaire, kenneth griffin, earns about $68 million a month, and gave $300,000 to groups backing candidates. $300,000 sounds like a lot of money, but griffin is so rich that to him that amount is the equivalent of $21.17 for a typical american household. so the equivalent of what we spend on a haircut or what bernie sanders saves by avoiding haircuts. [ laughter ] so what effect have these kinds of donations through deep pocketed donors had on the presidential campaign? well for one thing, they have made the campaigns much longer. >> it used to be when a candidate runs out of money, they have to drop out. now it's when they run out of their sugar daddy or their sugar mama who's funding their super pac. >> seth: and now try to sleep tonight knowing there might be a person chris christie considers
his sugar daddy. [ laughter ] but what this means is that candidates with little or no support can keep running because at any point a super pac could revive their campaign. the next time you're wondering why bobby jindal is still in the race, just know it's because a rich person said, "i want to see the little boy standing at the podium. [ laughter ] he tickles me!" another side effect of all this money flooding into campaigns is candidates have to do increasingly ridiculous things to curry favor with wealthy donors. for example, they have to attend events like this one over the summer organized by former republican presidential candidate, mitt romney. >> it is the most elite of retreats. 250 deep-pocketed romney loyalists in a five-star ski resort. three declared candidates, three likely in a kind of shark tank competition for campaign cash. >> i hope i find some investors. i'm a startup business. >> seth: that's right,
southern fried sneak. [ laughter ] the romney event was essentially a summer camp for millionaires with events including sunrise yoga, horseback riding with ann romney and a scenic hot air as well as less attended events, light stretching with john kasich, how to change an ink cartridge with carly fiorina, and hunt rand paul for sport. [ laughter ] but none of those could rival the most highly anticipated event of the entire summit. >> a bunch of the attendees here are actually off playing flag football right now with marco rubio, which is kind of the highlight of this weekend. >> seth: that's right. [ laughter ] marco rubio had to play flag football in an effort to get donations. and it doesn't even seem like those donors were having fun. look at the guy on the right in this photo. [ laughter ] i tell you. i'll give my money to a kid who doesn't run around so much. still went better than the other
time marco rubio played football. >> oh no! [ laughter ] >> seth: the problem with candidate spending this much time raising tons of money from donors, is that they become indebted to them. >> these candidates become focused on the support of such a tiny group of people, which is so important, because these super pacs are raising far more money than they're going to raise. and the result is when they get into government, who are they going to take a call from, who are they going to listen to? >> seth: "hey, president rubio, it's steve. yeah, yeah. steve from the football game. no, i'm fine. you were right, it was just a super bad cramp. anyway, do you think you can get the fda to approve asbestos as a food?" [ light laughter ] in fact, extensive research has found that the laws congress passes are mostly in response to the needs of wealthy elites, people like the billionaire koch brothers who have promised to spend almost $900,000,000 in the election and who held a summit of their own this august. a summit that allowed candidates to suck up to the
>> i'm honored to be here, i'm truly honored to be here. i really appreciated the invitation. >> this organization is supported by people of great accomplishment and intellect. >> the men and women in this room spilled gallons of blood, spent your fortunes, retaking the senate. >> seth: that was ted cruz giving a compliment. [ laughter ] you spilled gallons of blood, and i mean that in the nicest possible way. so the candidates clearly will do or say anything for the koch brothers' support. and on cbs this morning, charles koch was asked whether his efforts to influence the election worked so far. >> does it prove more difficult than you thought? >> are you kidding? you know, it's hard to save the world when the world doesn't want to be saved. >> seth: it's hard to save the world when the world doesn't want to be saved? you sound like every batman villain right before they get caught. [ laughter ] "but batman, i was just trying to save gotham! from itself!" [ laughter ]
this has been "a closer look." [ cheers and applause ] we'll be right back with olivia wilde. [ cheers and applause ] (vo) making the most out of every mile. that's why i got a subaru impreza. love. it's what makes a subaru, a subaru. now at applebee's on monday nights, you can score any of our burgers with free refills of fries for just $6.99. yup, you'll finally look forward to mondays with our biggest, juiciest deal ever.

[ cheers and applause ] >> seth: welcome back, everybody. please, give it up for the
"8g band!" [ cheers and applause ] fred, i'm so happy you're back this week. >> fred: yeah. >> seth: so happy to see you. i don't know if you guys -- one of the problems i have right now with television, there's so much good television out there, it's so hard to stay caught up with every show. as you guys may or may not know, fred, no one loves tv more than fred. i don't know how he does it, but he manages to watch everything, which brings us to a segment we call, "fred armisen's extremely accurate tv recap." [ applause ] so what i've done is i picked a show at random from the tv guide. and i'm gonna quiz fred right now. fred, did you see last week's "biggest and baddest?" >> "biggest and baddest?"e >> seth: yes. >> fred: have you seen it? >> seth: no. >> fred: it's so good. [ laughter ] >> seth: so good. >> fred: do you know th show? >> seth: no, i don't. >> fred: oh, you have to see it. >> seth: okay, great. >> fred: "biggest and baddest." >> seth: yeah. >> fred: oh, yeah. well it's -- what it is, it's a comparison of different car tires. [ laughter ] and so what they do is -- but it's -- it's done in a dramatic way. [ light laughter ] so it's part reality tv, and it's part, like, real drama. where someone will present, like, "this is the biggest
tire." [ light laughter ] and then this other guy comes along and he's like, "no, this is the biggest tire." and then, like, this third character who is so loveable, heart of gold -- liamm. [ laughter ] >> seth: what's his name? >> fred: liamm. >> seth: okay. [ laughter ] >> fred: with two m's. >> seth: two m's? at the end. >> fred: yeah. and he's like, "this is the baddest." [ laughter ] so there's a bigger tire and then a bigger one and then like the baddest tire. >> seth: okay. >> seth: and it's an hour long, and it's -- it's really a many, many characters. that's what's great. you get to know all these different characters. it's just so great. >> seth: and the characters then are all people who own one solitary tire? >> fred: yes. [ laughter ] they own one tire. and they bring it out at the end. they just bring out their tires. and they're brand-new. they're so new, these tires -- i mean like, they've never touched the street or anything. they're like -- you can see all the print on it. there's little bits of rubber coming out of them. like really new, too. >> seth: oh, the little tiny, little, like rubber strings. >> fred: yeah, those things. >> seth: yeah. >> fred: are like, it's all in half. >> seth: wow, so these are really new. >> fred: i mean, like the newest tires. [ laughter ] as new as can be. >> seth: wow.
>> yeah. so it's great. >> seth: and so how does the show resolve itself each week? like does somebody get -- does a tire get picked or selected? >> fred: it's all cliffhangers. [ laughter ] so you never know. and then they don't answer it the next week. they don't answer the question as to which is the biggest one. it's all cliff hangers the whole season. >> seth: gotcha. >> fred: yeah. >> seth: you know, again, i feel i need to complain to the good people at tv guide because they said its on the television channel, "wild," and this week, niall discovers a group of cassowary, the largest and deadliest birds in the world. [ laughter ] >> fred: that's -- you could see it that way. >> seth: okay. [ laughter ] >> fred: i could see how they would -- yeah. that's right. >> seth: thank you very much, fred. >> fred: sure. >> seth: i can't wait to see it. [ cheers and applause ] you know our first guest tonight from her work on the hit series, "house m.d.," and movies, such as "rush" and "tron: legacy." you can see her next in the new film, "meadowland," which opens in select theaters this friday, and is available on demand on october 23rd.
[ cheers and applause ] >> seth: how are you? >> i'm great. >> seth: now you, of course, have worked with fred before on "portlandia." >> yes i have. >> seth: yeah. this is your -- this is you taking fred hostage on "portlandia." you have pink hair, and fred has long, sort of, grayish hair, yeah. >> yeah. i think he bit me when we were shooting that. [ light laughter ] >> seth: did you? are you just that method that you bit her? >> you bit me a little bit. >> fred: always. [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah. >> it's okay. such a pretty face. >> seth: he has such a beautiful face. >> yeah. >> seth: so it's so lovely to have you here. i'm so happy you're here. your fiance, jason sudeikis was here recently. >> yes. >> seth: and he was telling a story. your lovely son, otis. >> yeah. >> seth: he got stung, otis got stung by a bee? >> he stepped on a bee. >> seth: right. >> it was so traumatizing. >> seth: but you found out that you were allergic to bees? you didn't know? >> recently my mom told me, sort of in a casual way, that i'm allergic to bees. and i said, "isn't that something i'm supposed to know?
around an epipen?" and she's, like, "i guess. you didn't remember that?" i was like, "no!" so when he was stung i stood there on guard waiting to see if he blew up like stay puft marshmallow man. >> seth: got it, but he didn't. >> he didn't. he's much stronger than i am. >> seth: that's great. and that's very noble of you to stay in a bee populated area despite your allergies. >> it was scary. >> seth: cause if i was allergic to bees, i don't care if was my kid, my dog, i'm out of there. [ laughter ] you know i have to -- >> right. what's not a bee populated area? >> seth: well, i don't know. i mean can walk around here and i don't step on a bee. this is where you gotta hang out. [ laughter ] >> this is it. >> seth: this studio, bee-proof. >> this is why i'm here today. >> seth: but you -- forget about bees, you had a baby monitor situation. >> yeah. so, babies are terrifying. >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] >> and there's nothing scarier than a baby monitor. and it just -- especially because of all these "paranormal activity" movies. >> seth: right. it has been used as a prop in so many horror films, now. >> yeah. kids have gotten scarier since they were used in horror movies. like now they're just a little creepy. >> seth: yeah. okay, gotcha. >> especially when they talk and if they sing, they're really scary. >> seth: yes.
[ laughter ] >> but he -- you know, i sleep with the baby monitor next to us and i woke up at like 4:00 in the morning, and i heard -- can i use this? >> seth: yeah, please. >> this is what i heard. [ creepy groans ] [ laughter ] >> i looked at the image on the monitor and it looked like a tunnel with white light. it kind of liked a demon colonoscopy. [ laughter ] >> seth: okay, gotcha. not what you want to see in the middle of the night. >> no, it's not what i'm supposed to see! >> seth: right. >> and i was like, "oh my god!" and i ran like tom cruise running like -- down the hallway, like, busted open the door. and he was cute as can be rolling around on his back with the monitor in his mouth. >> seth: oh, gotcha. [ laughter ] >> but the mic made it sound so scary. so they're terrifying. >> seth: yeah. they're really -- >> seth: well, that i can only imagine every single noise you hear must just -- >> demons. like, "oh, he's been possessed by demons." >> seth: right.
>> that was my first conclusion and always is. [ laughter ] >> seth: right. so, i guess ultimately if he never gets possessed by a demon, you're a good mother. >> i'm a winner. >> seth: yeah. very -- i feel like this feels like a transition into your films, but it's like such a good -- because this movie is a very dark. it's very wonderful, you're excellent in it. >> thank you. thank you. >> seth: but it is about parents going through a child being abducted. >> yes. >> seth: it's very dark material. >> yes. the film is called "meadowland" and it's about a couple, myself and luke wilson, who's phenomenal in this movie. >> seth: he's great. >> so good. and it's about our child goes mysteriously missing in the first scene, and you cut to a year later and see how we're both dealing with it, which is in very different ways, but we're both spinning out and going pretty crazy. and, yeah, it follows that fun-filled journey. >> seth: how not -- if you have a kid and it's your first night with a sitter, you're like, "let's go out and check out a movie." maybe wait on that. >> you should see it. [ laughter ] >> seth: no, i know you should see it. >> you should see it. >> seth: i know you should see it. it's great. >> you should see it. it doesn't matter who you are and how many kids you have. [ laughter ]
>> on friday. >> seth: if anything, you might learn something that'll keep it from happening to you. >> that's right. it's a cautionary tale. >> seth: it's a cautionary tale. ho does it -- how did you first get involved with this movie? did you audition for this part? >> i read the script and my agent said, "well this one's really competitive. like, everybody wants it." and i was like, "gee, thanks for the [ bleep ] pep talk." [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah. >> worst pep talk. but maybe it was the best, because i was like, "i'm gonna get this role." >> seth: got it. >> and i went and met the director, who's this incredible woman, reed morano, and i -- she's such a badass. she's a really well-known d.p. she shot movies like "frozen river," and "kill your darlings," and "skeleton twins." >> seth: oh, wow. >> and she's just the coolest. so i really wanted the role. and i said, "listen, i know everybody is coming at you for this role. but you should cast me. and you should come over to my apartment. and you should film me doing the scenes, and then you could look at that, and then decide if you want me to be in the movie."
and she said, "like an audition?" [ laughter ] and i was like, "yes! that. do that with me." >> seth: yeah, that's a good word for it. but you come to me! >> i like it. you come to my house! and she did. and we were living in this apartment. and there wasn't much room. and i'm -- jason was there, and i was like, "you have to hide because this director is coming over and she is going to film me. and you can't be in here. you have to go away." >> seth: right. >> so i put him in this little tiny office, and i'm thinking it will be 20 minutes. and two and a half hours later -- [ laughter ] i open the door and i was like, "hey." [ laughter ] >> seth: he had the baby monitor in his mouth. [ creepy groans ] [ laughter ] >> but luckily i got it so it was worth it. >> seth: and you ended up a -- you were producer of the film. >> yes. i loved it so much. i said, "let me come on as producer because i love this and i want to dedicate myself to it 100%." so it was my first time producing something from the ground up and it was really gratifying. >> seth: and it's really -- the movie looks beautiful. >> yeah. >> seth: it's so incredibly
well-acted. but you had -- because you were sort of doing it in that sort of independent film world, like, you had some interactions. you had a run-in with the cops. >> we did. we were pulled over in new jersey, because we had so little money that we just had to use the real world for everything and pretend like everyone worked for us. >> seth: right. so my character who is going a little crazy at times, i -- she is driving through new jersey, and every toll i went through, i acted super crazy, because they were filming me so i just used the toll operator as a cast member. and i was driving kind of erratically and being weird. and i look in the rear view, and there are 15 cops. [ laughter ] pulling us over. and i was like, "oh, my god. we're going to jail." [ laughter ] this isn't like a ticket. >> seth: yeah. >> so i pull over, and they come to the window and they're like, "what is this?" and we're like, "we're making a movie." and they're like, "this doesn't look like a real movie." [ laughter ] and i'm like, "it's an indie. [ laughter ]
it's cool." and they were not happy. they were so angry. they were like, "you set off every red flag." >> seth: right. >> good to know they've got their eye on things. >> seth: yeah, it is good. >> that's the good part of it. >> seth: it is. no, so you can't be crazy through tolls and get away with it. >> yeah. they're looking at you, crazy people. they see you. >> seth: yeah. by the way, crazy people at home are like, "they do?" [ laughter ] >> no! >> seth: hurray! [ laughter ] >> but then it's like, we were definitely going to jail. they were not taking any of our excuses seriously. and then one of them looked in the window and he went, "tron." [ laughter ] >> seth: that was it? you tronned your way out of it. >> and i was like, "finally!" [ laughter ] so yeah, thanks, disney. >> seth: you mentioned elisabeth moss. >> yes, elisabeth moss. it's an amazing cast. kevin corrigan. >> seth: kevin corrigan is one of the best. john leguizamo. >> seth: it's great. we have a clip do you want to set it up at all. >> yes. so this is me and giovanni ribisi who plays my brother-in-law and he's come to stay after the disappearance of
we never have gotten along. there is a lot of tension there. and, yeah. i'm letting him stay. >> seth: all right. let's take a look. >> i can't believe it's been a year. >> yeah, he really loved you too. >> did he really? >> imagine that. yet you never once remembered his birthday. the fact that i'm a super flawed individual. i mean, it's already on the table. >> oh, how hard was that, tim? >> for a self medicating ass [ bleep ] like me? it was hard, yeah. what, are you mad at me right now? >> giggle the handle on the bathroom if you go. it gets stuck. >> seth: it's really great. [ cheers and applause ] you're fantastic in it. >> thank you. >> seth: and i can't imagine it was an easy part to play. >> it was not easy. >> seth: but we're about -- after this commercial break, we're going to put you something even harder as an actress. >> oh, really? >> seth: yeah. the "actathalon." >> i'm ready. >> seth: we'll be right back with more olivia wilde.

[ laughter ] >> seth: classic improv. let's show the folks at home the feats of acting expertise you'll have to display this evening.
against the devil's desk. here, you'll have to angrily say a line of dialogue into a phone, and then swipe the contents off the desk. after that it's, "the mirror of introspection," where your character will have to stare at her reflection and wonder who the hell she's become. [ laughter ] then you'll move on to "the why," where you'll dramatically scream "why" to the heavens after receiving some terrible news. and then you enter the "quick pit" where you give an impassioned speech about all you've done for this company and quit in a blaze of glory. then you'll run up the stairs and enter the "idiot inferno" where you'll be approached by a fan who wants to take a selfie but cannot figure out how his [ laughter ] then it's off to "the sneak of shame," where you'll wake up slightly hung over, look at a man you regret sleeping with, and then sneak out of the apartment without waking him up. after that, our collective skin will crawl as you enter the horror genre in "the telephone of terror." then you show your ability to play a no-nonsense attorney by saying "i object" in "the courtroom crusher." then we're headed into the home stretch as you'll enter "the promote a movie you know is complete garbage. and finally, you'll come up
where you throw a glass of wine into a huge ass [ bleep ] face. olivia, are you ready? >> yeah. yeah. i just want to do a quick vocal warm-up. >> seth: okay, great. >> okay, ready. blah, blah, blah blah, blah, blah, blah. okay, i'm ready. >> seth: all right.
